Red5 on Windows 2003 not working

Question asked by simonkeating on Sep 27, 2010

I have been using Openfire 3.6.4 and Spark 2.5.8 on a Windows 2003  SP2 server for some time and have had no problems.  I would like to try video calls between Spark clients and found this document in the red5 plugin section of the forums. Also,


downloaded the red5.war file from and the red5-plugin.jar file.  Copied the red5-plugin.jar file to the users ~/Spark/plugins folder. All seems ok. Copied the red5.war file to the Openfire_HOME/plugins directory, restarted the server and get a "red5" tab in the admin console.  I used all the default settings i.e. HTTP_BIND is on port 7070, etc.


When trying to connect to I get an error





Powered by jetty:// "


and can't find how to overcome this.


There are errors in red5.log and red5error.log (attached) such as:-


"Caused by: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'Server' defined in class path resource [red5-rtmpt.xml]: Invocation of init method failed; nested exception is Address already in use: bind"


netstat -a shows that the server is listening on port 7070


There are other services eg HP Procurve Manager, HP Web Jetadmin and Spiceworks running on this server using IIS/Tomcat?Apache but I can't see that any of them use port 7070.


I have searched through the forums to no avail, searched google for "jetty error 503", not much luck. (except maybe but I can't access the page using the complete url so not sure this is relevant)


Any help gratefully received.
